earth

earth poem by steven james humphreys

they say you create your own reality

but, it somehow doesn’t seem quite like it’s true

things aren’t necessarily how they appear

and we can be wrong about things

yet, you know, it is us who sees through these eyes of ours

and, it is us who have our own beliefs, prejudices and opinions

so, at the same time, we need to be easy on ourselves

for earth has never been such an easy place to be

even though you sit in an easy chair

with a drink in your hand

and watch the world pass you by.
